Sierra Introduces 3 New Tipped MatchKing® Bullets

Tipped MatchKing groupLast year Sierra Bullets crowned the MatchKing® with an acetal resin tip that lowers the drag by improving the ballistic coefficient. This year we are expanding this extremely popular line to include 6mm, 6.5mm, and 7mm options.  This 6mm 95 grain TMK® requires a twist rate of 1:9” or faster to stabilize and the 6.5mm 130 gr. TMK® requires a twist rate of 1:8” or faster to stabilize.

For shooters who are looking for a tipped match bullet, your King has just been crowned!  Tipped MatchKing bullets are available in 100 and 500 count box bullets with 2016 suggested retail pricing as follows: #7295 – $38.14, #7295C – $187.37, #7430 – $41.28, #7430C – $203.00, #7660 – $43.56, and #7660C – $213.69.

    Those BCs in the right order on the 6.5 and 7mm? Why are they not the highest at the highest velocity?

    • Yes Kris, they look strange, but they are correct. Some bullets have less yaw in flight as the velocity slows down a bit.
      It’s individual for each bullet, some get better at higher velocities and some get worse.

    Do the tips retain their ‘composure’ during fast, long range flights?
